Montessori’s Greatest Invention.

Add this simple exercise to your school and you’ll notice a huge improvement in the engagement and academic ability of your students.

“Going out’ as it’s called is an extra curricular option for all students. It allows the children to take what information and research they can from what the school has to offer, but also encourages them to utilise the local environment too.

How does it work?

Following a lesson on Bali, Children may be researching information using books, the library, the internet etc. In addition, children can collect a “Going Out” application form Get one here which asks them where they’d like to go? Why? When? And who will be going? Importantly, why they feel that this excursion will benefit their learning?

A list of parent chaperones is kept on the classroom wall by the telephone, children are encouraged to ask a parent to assist them and once approved by the teacher, the children go out into the community to enhance their learning further.

In this particular occasion children visited the local shops to buy typical Indonesian foods to share with the rest of the class.

What may look like a trip out of schools turns into a deeper exercise involving persuasion, writing, timetabling, organisation of resources and communicating.

  1. Nice message , this is need of education system , they will get some practical experience and can relate their classroom study with life experience

  2. The message is really worthy but the photos are of my child’s school @Alive Montessori n Training Centre of Bhaktapur,Nepal; the country of where the world’s highest peak Mount Everst lies,something is mistaken in this message that these photos are not of Bali, Indonesia, they have visited to local shops for learning Nepali foods in the market.I hope the mistake will be corrected.Thank you-Regards Parent of Alive Montessori, Bhaktapur,Nepal.
